An Illuminating Evening

On January 22, 2014, the inaugural Luminary Awards to benefit the UCLA Department of Head and Neck Surgery were held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The event, which raised funds for the UCLA Department of Head and Neck Surgery, honored:

  • James Bashor, a leading real-estate developer, and his wife Dianne, longtime UCLA donors, especially committed to the department’s Voice Center for Medicine and the Arts, which helps patients with poor or lost voices return to normal, productive speaking;
  • John Mayer, a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer and a healthcare advocate who generates awareness for the department’s research, treatments and life-saving endeavors;
  • Jerry Moss, co-founder of A&M Records, and his wife Ann, generous friends of the department, who funded the newly completed Sound Studio at the UCLA Voice Center for Medicine and the Arts.

Guests were entertained by special guest performer Celine Dion, as well as honoree, John Mayer. Wayne Newton served as master of ceremonies.
